Cos I really am, have come up with several great and inventive ways to escape... including various ACME products (AKA Wyly Coyote)

    Have you tried the dares game? We play it a lot in our office...
  • ThewaylanderThewaylander Posts: 8,767
    All the people in my office are 50+ austere ladies, nice and all, but hardly a bundle of laugh bar talking about children/grand children not really the topic of choice lol
  • lexiekaylexiekay Posts: 379
    maybe you'd better not then -they might get offended!

    cant flick that far, theres no one within 15 metres of me :lol:

    here's the others though:

    ONE-POINT DARES
    1. Ignore the first five people who say 'good morning' to you.
    2. To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears and grimace.
    3. Leave your fly open for one hour. If anyone points it out, say, "Sorry, I really prefer it this way".
    4. Walk sideways to the photocopier.
    5. While riding in an lift, gasp dramatically every time the doors open.
    6. When in the lift with one other person, tap them on the shoulder and pretend it wasn't you.
    7. Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy..."
    8. Don't use any punctuation.
    9. Interrupt your conversation with someone by giving a huge dejected sigh.
    10. Use your highlighter pen on the computer screen.


    THREE-POINT DARES
    1. Say to your boss, "I like your style", wink, and shoot him with double-barrelled fingers.
    2. Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle.
    3. Shout random numbers while someone is counting.
    4. Every time you get an email, shout ''email''.
    5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has got over his or her caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
    6. Keep hole punching your finger. Each time you do, shout, "dammit, it's happened again!". Then do it again.
    7. Introduce yourself to a new colleague as "the office bicycle". Then wink and pout.
    8. Call I.T. helpdesk and tell them that you can't seem to access any p*rnography web sites.

    FIVE-POINT DARES
    1. At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if you actually launch into it yourself).
    2. Walk into a very busy person's office and while they watch you with growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
    3. For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as "Dave".
    4. Announce to everyone in a meeting that you "really have to go do a number two".
    5.. When you've picked up a call, before speaking finish off some fake conversation with the words, ''she can abort it for all I care''.
    6. After every sentence, say 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in: "The report's on your desk, Mon." Keep this up for one hour.
    7. In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!"
    8. At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce, "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again!"
    9. Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now."
    10. Present meeting attendees with a cup of coffee and biscuit; smash each biscuit with your fist.
    11. During the course of a meeting, slowly edge your chair towards the door.
    12. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
    13. Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.

    she'd cook for me once and i'd be smitten

    so its true what they say about a man's heart and his stomach....
    must be where i've been going wrong - even managed to set fire to the tea towel when making rice krispie cakes the other day :oops:
  • ThewaylanderThewaylander Posts: 8,767

  • .....she'd be Baberaham Lincoln.
    In France she'd be called "Le Renard", and would be hunted with only her cunning to protect her.

    When I was working last year I used to spend a lot of time sending Wayne's World quotes to my housemate. I'd send one line, she'd send the next one back, and so on. We'd get through a few scenes a day if I wasn't busy.

    Great movie, and the "Le Renard" line is a particularly fine quote...made me laugh out loud, though luckily I work from home.

    stealing your idea and using it as my own so everyone will think I'm great! (priceless!!)

    Hmm, I work in a recording studio, so most of those aren;t applicabble unfortunately. (well, I say work :wink: )

    But, I have passed a dull afternoon of waiting for a singer once by playing hide and seek in a 12m x 9m control room with 4 other people!
  • lexiekaylexiekay Posts: 379
    Now that sounds like fun! I used to work in a recording studio part time when i was at school - long time ago now!

    Most fun I ever had at work was a bunch of us built forts out of cardboard boxes and had a scrunched up paper ball throwing battle in the sub-basement of the building we were working in- happy days..... :D
